The first extra bus will start at 10:10 p.m. on the above dates and the last bus will leave at 2:25 a.m.

Meeting Reminders:
Wednesday, April 27th: Tenant Meeting, Forest Manor P.S. at 7:00 p.m.

We will be updating tenants from 110 Parkway Forest and 65 Forest Manor Rd. on building and balcony improvements as well as City understanding of building improvement notice requirements. At this time we will also give a brief update on ongoing development.

Monday, May 2nd: "Official Plan 101" , Shaughnessy P.S. 7:00 p.m.

The Ward 33 Advisory Committee will be having a brief meeting at 6:30 and then a general meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. to present an overview of the City of Toronto Official Plan.
While the OP was approved by Council in the last term of office it was not widely discussed in Ward 33 as the Sheppard Subway building boom had not yet extended into our neighbourhood. But since I've taken office, resident groups have requested a meeting to gain a better understanding of what the plan says and how it will guide staff and influence planning in our Ward and the surrounding community in which we travel. As well, some new resident groups have been formed or resurrected since my term began and need to be updated.

We are honoured to have former Chief Planner during design of the OP, Paul Bedford, to make a special presentation. All Ward 33 residents are welcome.
